Quick thinking workers at a Bend hair salon kept smoke and fire in a clothes dryer at a minimum.  Just before noon on Tuesday; Bend Fire responded to a call about the fire at Plethora Salon on SW Knoll.  When the firefighters arrived, salon workers had used fire extinguishers to keep the fire from spreading and contained within the dryer that was being used to dry salon towels.  The fire report says while the investigation is continuing, they remind you to clean your dryer lint collectors and  that rags that were used with any kind of alkaloid oil such as linseed or olive oils can react to high dryer heat and combust.  The damages were confined to the dryer with a loss of about $500.
